H_art the band is a group of 3 amazingly talented lads namely Wachira Gatama, Kenneth Muya and Mordecai Kimeu. The trio formed their band back in 2013 after performing together for the first time at Dass Ethiopian Restaurant.
The band has over the years managed to secure a large and loyal fanbase of both the young and the elderly due to their undeniable musical versatility, energy and unmatched sense of humor whose music style is abstract, African-pop, urban-colored vintage, uniquely comical and spoken-word filled music that makes every crowd laugh until they cry begging for more. These guys are the real deal.
Turns out an impersonator is about to ruin their hard built career with drunk stunts. In a public statement the band disclosed that a guy posing as H_art the band vocalist, Mordecai, has been conning a number of club owners.
In a lengthy post, the band dissociated from the impostor who they also revealed has been going to perform drunk, and further went ahead to plead with him to stop.
“It has come to our attention that the guy above has been masquerading as MORDECAi from H_ART THE BAND _& he has been extorting club owners. This guy has even gone to the extent of buying a microphone that’s almost similar to the one used by our Bro @mordecai_dex. Together with an anonymous lady who goes by the name ‘porsha’they have been doing rounds in numerous clubs _& the saddest part is: as you can see from the video, the guy just looks like Mordecai from afar but he can’t sing to save his life. So, after being introduced as Mordecai from h_art the band*inserts sad emoji* he goes ahead to ‘Rap’ his very own songs. Really?!!! Piece of advice to him _& to others: The world is a small space _& if you are going to do a Mordecai impersonation at least learn how to sing _; don’t go to stage ‘DRUNK’ #WorkEthics.”
The band finished off by saying;
“We have worked our a*@es off to get to where we are now _& being the best performers Kenya has now this ninja wants to spoil it by going to stage drunk. NO WAY !!! Please if you are an organizer beware of impersonators – Not everyone with dreadlocks is H_ART THE BAND – Go an extra mile _& look at the guy closely. We were really saddened by this information _& we have not been able to post it for almost 2weeks because we understand that there are no jobs and the youth are out here hustling but please don’t let your hustle be one that will kill someone else’s hustle #RespectTheHustle#RespectTheProcess if you know this guy please tell him that we are looking for him- no beef but we want to iron things out_& see how we can help him .He has such guts.”
